Black Screen after 2 Minute Blue Total War Rome II Flash Screen

cpierotcpierot Junior MemberPosts: 5Registered Users
I love the Total War series and I have been really looking forward to Total War Rome 2. So as with all new games I checked the system requirements before I installed the game. Everything I am running is more than capable of handling the game (based on my understanding). After obtaining my copy I immediately went home and the following occurred:

-Installed via disc purchased at store and downloaded more from Stream as prompted by the program
-Verified game cache via Stream

The program installed and started with no issue but once the Blue Total War Rome II Screen appeared it stayed up for two minutes. The Sega screen was black but with sound. The Starting video and following screen both had audio but no video... Just a black screen. Nice background music with a black screen and a nice curser are all I was left with. After reading the posts here and elsewhere I tried the following…

Checked for, installed, rebooted (obviously) and moved on to next item on the “To Do” list…

- Updated operating system (Vista Premium 64)
- Updated all hardware via manufactures website (video, audio, you name it)
- Attempted to open program in window and not full screen
- Attempted some of the direct program changes suggested by various posts and after attempting altered the files back to the original state (none of the suggestions worked)
-Uninstalled all content of the game and reinstalled the program using disc
-Unistalled all content of the game and reinstall the program from Stream
-Verified game cache via stream (both from disc and from Stream)
-Launched other Total War games from PC and Stream (everything works fine)
-Spent the afternoon looking though posts about black screens for TWR2 and TWS2 but no solution offered work... I mean NO SOLUTION OFFERED WORKED… AT ALL!

I understand Friday is the first scheduled update. I have used Total War games in the past and I know nothing ever starts out perfectly for every user on day one but is there anything suggestion I am missing or should try? (Other than wait till Friday and see if that patch works for any of my issues…)

I open to any suggestions anyone would like to make... Maybe up to the point of buying a new PC lol...

P.S. I have watched video of the game on youtube, OMG I CANT WAIT TO PLAY THIS GAME! IT LOOKS LIKE A TRUE MASTER PIECE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am getting a similar problem, when I start the game the video pops up and goes minimized straight away. If I click it in the task bar it flicks on for a second and then back. I thought I had fixed it by pressing the windows key first last night (thought it might be stuck) and it worked and I played a few hours. That seemed to be a fluke though because tonight it is again doing the same minimizing behavior.

    I am using the steam version on windows 7

    Found solution

    Go to Start->Search and type run
    New window will pop up and type in: appdata
    this will open the appdata folder
    Go to folder: Roaming
    Go to folder: Creative Assembly
    Go to folder: Rome2
    Go to folder: scripts
    open preferences.script.txt
    ctrl-f and search for direct - this should take you to the part that says "gfx_enable_directx11"
    turn this to false

    Holy sheep. I have fixed the black SCREEN problem.

    I will try my best now to post this in every BLACK SCREEN thread and i will personally help anyone that needs it, PM, post or whatever i will help everyone.

    First of all i reinstalled the game yesterday, i noticed something very different, and that is after reinstalling i verified the game cache, then i changed the language to FRENCH.

    Then i noticed it said UPDATING in the Library.

    That's the missed content that is needed to run the game i think, it's just stuck.
    I didn't even try the delete ROME 2 folder thing, i didn't need to because now it works because i get a RED LOGO screen first NOT the blue LOGO screen.

    If i can fix it, I'm sure most people can if they can get the extra content downloaded, hope this helps.
